This mix of canyoning and abseiling experience is a perfect way to experience the outdoors, especially in the Blue Mountains.
We begin the day with learning the ropes "literally" with a half day dry abseiling. The abseiling is done off the Narrow Neck plateau itself, with three different pitches - 5m, 15m, 30m. Afterwards we all head around to the Conservation Hut area for lunch and the Empress Canyon.
The Empress Canyon consists of majestic rainforest scenery with rock jumps from 2m up to 5m and finishes with a breath-taking 30m waterfall abseil! The longest swim required to complete is approximately 10m. You will be provided with a thick, warm wetsuit, canyoning harness, backpack and a helmet. Once you are geared up, we give you abseil preparation training, then off we go to start our journey into the depths of the canyon!
Before you get to the waterfall, you will have already gasped at the canyon s beautiful rainforest and sculptured rock, clambered over boulders, leaped into deep pools, and spotted bright orange crayfish. For the canyon you will also wear a wetsuit to protect you from its always cool waters and there are some short swims involved.
Our moderate level trips will see you spending more time outdoors and moving that body of yours for up to 6.5-7 hours on this canyon day. You will need high mobility and expect to be on your feet moving up and down rocks and hills. Physical exercise should not be new to you.
